Adding color to link in post

I would like to add color to a link in a post, like a royal blue. I am linking to another post in the body of a post, but when i try to change the color, the only choice is grey to black. Even if I choose a color in ATO/Body, Text Link/Link Default Color, it wont change to any color but black or gray. Any Ideas?

one way to do this would be to assign the link a class of your own then add a CSS Insert to set the color. For example, if the post was
HTML Code:
if you want to go to MYDOMAIN.COM, then <a class="my_color_class" href='http://mydomain.com'>click here to go to MYDOMAIN.COM</a>
you could then put this in CSS Inserts
HTML Code:
.my_color_class { color: #00ffff !important; }
and all you would have to do to change the color would be to change the insert, or you could code
HTML Code:
.my_color_red { color: red !important; }
.my_color_orange { color: orange !important; }
.my_color_yellow { color: yellow !important; }
.my_color_green { color: green !important; }
.my_color_blue { color: blue !important; }
then just use the appropriate class in the link
